Loved this cute place! We needed a quick place to stretch or legs and grab a snack, found the GEM! The kids were able to play games upstairs while our finger foods were being made. Really sweet girls that helped us out, Kyla and Raynee!...More

We had a girlfriend weekend in Panguitch, the Gem was a fun night! We ordered a hand made sandwich then saw the 830 show. The food was great and the theater was restored and beautiful.

I was not able to see a move there as it was under renovation. The location and exterior were great. I was told by travelers and locals that it was a great venue, can't wait to check it out next time I'm in Panguitch!
